Hey I am looking for a kill command that lets my app kill other apps while my app is running in the background. I am building my app on a jailbroken iPhone so I am looking for one that will work with the iOS X platform. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, rytimeAnswer1:
killall, which will kill an application by it's binary's name, or there is
kill which will kill by a process ID. Are either of those what you want?
NSString *exec = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"killall %@", executableName]; system([exec UTF8String]);<hr />
NSString *exec = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"kill %i", processId]; system([exec UTF8String]);Answer2:
If your app isn't made especially for that purpose then you shouldn't do this without the user knowing it. You can either use
"killall executableName" in a
system() command or if you are developing for MobileSubstrate then you could hook some SpringBoard classes and close the SBApplication/remove the SBApplicationIcon from the switcher which will also close the corresponding SBApplication.
